Primary Instructor:

Some scholars argue that music not only influences our perceptions of the contemporary world, but also serves to construct it through social messages the music encodes. This lecture / discussion class seeks to adapt this way of thinking to the music and social rituals of the Middle Ages. Focusing on five sites of medieval musical activity — the monastery, the castle, the cathedral, the urban fair, and the palace — participants will examine the music as well as medieval and modern discourses surrounding it. Students will be asked to prepare for discussions by completing reading, web-based visual, and on-line listening assignments. They should expect two 12-15-page papers and two essay examinations at mid-term and final. This introductory course is intended for non-music majors; familiarity with modern musical notation is not expected.
